Departing Liverpool veteran Dirk Kuyt is supremely confident that two of his old teammates can do well for the England national team.

Jordan Henderson and Martin Kelly have been surprise call-ups following injuries to Chelsea pair Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill and even though they are unproven at international level, Fenerbahce-bound Kuyt feels they will perform well for the Three Lions at Euro2012 if they are required.

"Roy Hodgson is the one who decides who he selects for the national team," the Dutchman said.

"There's only one decision to make - he has to make the best possible team. I'm sure Martin Kelly and Henderson will do well.

"They are young but they're both very talented and I'm sure they will help England moving forward."
